Gas - Gas

Label: Mille Plateaux

Year: 1996

Styles: Ambient Techno, Minimal Techno


Although Wolfgang Voigt's first outing under the Gas moniker came long before he established Kompakt records; the album contains all the distinctive elements which would later set that label apart from it's less creative rivals.

All of the tracks clock in at over ten minutes, with Voigt having decided by then that giving tracks titles wasn't necessary. The track listing simply reads "Untitled" six times in a row.

Much like his later Kompakt desciples, Voigt is adept at blending the warm elements of beatless ambient, with the cold atmosphere of Porter Ricks/Basic Channel style minimalist techno.

Both fans of Ambient and Techno will find something here to like.

Wait a minute, what do you mean with "Ambient Techno"? It's a new term and I don't know the concept, anyways I will find the latest album.
